Subsequently, Dr. Baryeh led his independent research group at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville where he focused on the development of point-of-care diagnostics for the screening of cancer biomarkers. Dr. Baryeh is excited about joining the Clinical Chemistry Fellowship at the University of Utah, and looks forward to directly contributing to patient care. He is interested in laboratory developed tests and clinical assay validation. Outside of work, he enjoys video gaming, watching movies, listening to audio books, and looks forward to exploring the great landscapes of Utah and engaging in outdoor activities with his family.
